Bunratty Potcheen is some of the most foul stuff I’ve ever had, it’s just plain awful. It smells like sugared diaper rash cream and basically tastes like sugared Neosporin and even though it doesn’t have a long finish the fact that it hangs around at all is a tragedy. It can’t actually be called Irish Whiskey, which needs to spend at least 3 years in a barrel, and I feel like it’s a disservice to call this Irish Moonshine either. Calling it a disaster in a bottle would be far more…

Poitín – ‘Irish moonshine’.(pronounced po-cheen) is one of the strongest drinks in the world. It is also known as Poteen. It was illegal for centuries and so, like moonshine, it was homemade, usually in remote rural areas. People would make it out of whatever they had to spare which was usually potatoes or apples. The quality of the drink varied hugely from one maker to the next. Image copyright Ireland Calling
